Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I get the idea (cyrus)sieve and procmail are equivalent?
I used to get mail for unrecognized users to collect in a master account, rather than bounce. How do I achieve this in cyrus? - now that I've gone all modern.
(Or can I mix procmail and cyrus)
Previous setup :-
pop3->fetchmail->sendmail->procmail to decode->user inboxes->imap
In detail -
- fetchmail - single-mailbox pop3 pickup
- into sendmail
- into one master account,
- then procmail rules would decode the proper local recipient account (rule below) and redirect it there. Or leave other general mail to my domain in the master account.
* for <email@example.com>;*
Lovely. Nothing bounced back, no mails dissappeared (unless I wanted them to ).
Magically - it seems that intended recipients are being decoded automatically - which is nice. (By cyrus/sieve?)
However - mail for unrecognised users is being bounced, rather than kept in my catchall account.
Who, if anyone, can read this stuff?? I don't have much hope that they can speak English.
What is this doing? - Is it deriving the correct recipient? - Is it bouncing the mail?
Is it recalibrating the Mass of Jupiter.
Until I work this one out (I need to know a lot more about Sieve), here is the workaround I'm going to use.
- Keep PROCMAIL as my local mailer in the Sendmail config (remove references to cyrus)
- Let procmail derive the recipient address as before
- Get the mail to cyrus by using /usr/lib/cyrus-imapd/deliver -a username -m "user/username"
(My cyrus folder sperarator character is '/' - see imapd.conf - unixhierarchysep = yes)
Here is the procmail rule
* for <firstname.lastname@example.org>;*
| /usr/lib/cyrus-imapd/deliver -a username -m "user/username"
Now to try it.
This is turning into a blog. Sorry!
